In that exact scenario, bet 1/2 the pot and see what happens. At least 2 of those 4 limpers will fold (most of the time), often everyone will fold. You know the feeling, you don't like the flop, and will do anything to fold, force fold even. Well, everyone finds themselves in that situation.. Give em a reason to fold.
